in cairo and they agreed on a cease-fire, and the israeli government surprised us. and then -- i hope this will be an eye-opener for mr. netanyahu. i hope that he will get one lesson. the lesson is that security will only be achieved through peace, through the two-step solution. security will not be achieved through bombing and wars and war-mongering. we need to reach this conclusion and we need now to support everything offered by the egyptians in order to get a comprehensive cease-fire. that's what we're working on. he's fully engaged with all palestinian actions, including hamas, and is fully on board to achieve a blanket comprehensive cease-fire because that's what will help all concerned, palestinians, israelis, and americans. >> i know one of the issues the israelis are demanding in the israeli cabinet, i'm told is meeting right now, even as we speak, the so-called international security cabinet, the prime minister, benjamin netanyahu, one of the things they want to make sure is that even if there's a cease-fire, the shelling into israel, some of these rockets and missiles don't

the mobilization of 75,000 army reservists. joining us now is nbc live from gaza. as peace talks continue in cairo, israel is demanding that hamas stop firing rockets across the border. is there a willingness to do this or has the number of civilian casualties made a cease-fire now much less likely? >> well, you know, the fact that the negotiations are ongoing is an indication that palestinian factions can abide by the truce. in fact, in the past it's been on multiple occasions documented that palestinian factions have been committed to the truce until there's been some kind of violation, if you will, from the israeli side that israel justifies as an act in its own security. nonetheless, palestinian factions say they have abided by it in the past, they would abide by it again in the future if there is one in place. the question is can they get to that agreement in the next couple hours before time runs out. and the question really surrounding the truce have to deal with the cessation of hostilities. israel wants an immediate cessation of hostilities. then enter into negotiations about lifting a fi

important. now the secretary general ban ki-moon is in cairo. so there's a lot of pressure, the u.s. would certainly like to see a cessation of hostilities, the israelis are anxious for that to happen. they want to see what's going on. one of the things that the israelis point out is that yes, hamas is in charge and they hold that group responsible. but there's other groups in gaza that may not completely been under the control of hamas. that could be one of the problems even though one of the -- saying hamas is responsibility for any rockets that come into israel right now. some of the civilian casualties we saw today, there will be a lot more if israeli tanks or armored personnel carries or israeli troops move into that heavily populated area, but they're saying and the prime minister said today, benjamin net tanya -- netanyahu. >> wolf blitzer -- president obama is monitoring the conflict in the middle east as he travels through asia. today in thailand, he said the u.s. will work with all parties to end the violence. later today, mr. obama makes history when he becomes the first u.s. pr

in cairo for talks tomorrow and arab league foreign ministers are set to visit gaza on tuesday. but both israelis and palestinians say the solution must come from the other side. >> we are trying to drive home the message to hamas that they cannot shoot at israeli civilians, try to kill israeli civilians with impunity and we've been able to reduce to a remarkable extent the amount of civilian casualties on their side. compare that to what hamas is doing to us. they're trying to maximize the number of israeli civilians they kill. that's the difference between a terrorist organization and a democratic country. >> i think, the ambassador knows that it was israel who provoked hamas by taking arms with one of the commanders on wednesday. they knew that hamas and other actions in the gaza strip would retaliate, so they also are to be blamed for this escalation in the violence between the gaza strip and israel. it's time for the united states and the international community to force and pressure israel to lift the siege, and that, i believe, will lead to putting an end. >> meanwhile, palestinia
, no the a premeditated response to of what had transpired in cairo. >> so how did that happen? how was that accurate at the time? if we know that this was in fact a premeditated, not spontaneous occurrence? >> well, we don't know the degree it was premeditated. that's still something that's under investigation. how much advance planning was there or was this planned within 24 hours or the same day. so that's a question we still have to the get to the bottom of, but the important point in terms of the ambassador's statement on that sunday talk program is she was using the intelligence community's best estimate. at that time when she appeared on the sunday talk shows, the intelligence community still believed that that began as a protest, that, yes, there were terrorists and extremists involved, but that it began as a protest. so i don't see how we can fall the ambassador for using what the intelligence community said was their best assessment. in fact, in my view if she had deviated from that, if she had departed from what the intelligence community said they thought took place, then she would have b
fire in this critical part of the world? she's going to cairo, to egypt because everybody is counting on them. they are indispensable. the president is finishing his trip in the far east and he's kept up his schedule of public events and appearances there but he's been doing some diplomacy personally. "the new york times" reporting that the president spent last night up until 2:30 in the morning making one-on-one direct phone calls with the israeli prime minister and also not the head of hamas, not the palestinian authority, but the president of egypt, which for a generation was our ally in the region, even though it was a creepy and repressive dictatorship. now that country, that crucial nation in this critical part of the world has a whole new face and maybe a whole new character in terms of its international responsibilities. nobody knows if this effort by them to broker a ceasefire is going to work. but it seems almost as important for the region, for the world, for us, frankly, that if a cease fire is going to come from anywhere, it looks like it's going to come from there. joini
